The State Courts strive to serve our community by providing litigants with an effective and accessible system of justice, inspiring public trust and confidence. Many legal problems that court users face belie other social and emotional issues. They may enter the Courts with feelings of anger, loss, frustration, and seek justice to be served, to be reconciled with others or even themselves, in the hope of having their lives restored.

For more than a decade, the State Courts have introduced a number of programmes in the justice divisions, namely the Criminal Justice Division and Civil Justice Division, to promote greater accessibility to justice, enhance support for members of the public, and enable the State Courts to provide a more effective and efficient justice system. Many of these programmes are supported by volunteers.

Court volunteers play a vital role in serving together with the State Courts, making a real difference in the lives of others through the giving of their resources for the well-being of others. Many court users have benefitted from the assistance and support provided by the court volunteers.


If you have a passion for volunteerism, we invite you to join hands with us to serve needy litigants and court users. You can serve as volunteer mediators, or as volunteers to provide emotional and moral support to indigent litigants-in-person. If you are legally trained, you can also volunteer as Referees at the Small Claims Tribunals to help adjudicate certain small claims cases.
